Family Appreciation Tea held at Dunham Children’s Learning Center

The Dunham Children’s Learning Center recently celebrated the end of the semester, as families joined their children for an afternoon snack during the Family Appreciation Tea. The young toddler class made Pumpkin Pie in a Cup, the older toddler class prepared a cereal snack mix, and preschoolers learned about measuring and baking while preparing oatmeal cookies and banana bread. “The food was so delicious that parents asked for recipes!” said director Barbara J. Albert, who also provided the photo at left. Teachers prepared activities for the families, and students from the Early Childhood Education program supervised them. Children had fun making paper-plate pumpkins, playing a beanbag game and experimenting with “squishy” bags. Each family contributed a handprint “leaf” to the center’s Thankful Tree, highlighting the people and things for which they’re grateful.
